2017 Sandhi Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay

SKU #1433232 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Chardonnay Sta. Rita Hills was aged 12 months in used, 500-liter barrels and another six months in tank. It's youthfully shy on the nose, slowly giving up notions of saline, crushed shell, Greek yogurt and orange blossom with pie crust, Golden delicious apple, white peaches and notes of honey and hazelnut. Light to medium-bodied, it offers great balance of spicy fruit and mineral notions framed by tangy acidity and finishing long and textured. (EB) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Tightly wound on the nose, this appellation blend by Raj Parr and Sashi Moorman shows wet stone and lemon peel on the nose but also slightly fatter hints of seared apple, daffodil and light dairy. The sip is also tense and fresh, with lime-pith flavors and the slightest hint of nuts on the finish. (MK) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sandhi's 2017 Chardonnay (Sta. Rita Hills) is translucent and wonderfully expressive, not to mention full of pure appeal. Orchard fruit, citrus peel and floral notes are sculped with lovely energy and persistence. Poised and impeccable in its balance, the Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay has a lot to recommend it. Then again, most of the fruit is sourced from Domaine de la Côte, so the quality level here is not entirely surprising. (AG) Inner quote mark (9/2019)
